A non-profit foundation for the preservation, protection, and return of their cultural heritage to Native peoples, especially children, and founded on the conviction that the loss of cultural identity – the theft of the sacred – is the most insidious and dangerous threat to the survival of Native American culture in our time.
The Buffalo Trust is concerned to enable Native American children to know their cultural inheritance, instill confidence in that identity, and to claim their place in the world. It is the conviction of the Buffalo Trust that we have a crucial and moral obligation to work for the achievement of this purpose. It is a cause of the greatest importance and urgency. Let us acknowledge, embrace, and celebrate that cause.
